's a big breakfast... [ mini ] yee haw! ...in those fun little biscuits. >>> the international energy agency predicts that the u.s. could overtake saudi arabia and russia as the world's largest oil producer by 2020. much of the current energy boom comes from the increasing use of a process known as hydraulic fracturing or more common name fracking. in which oil and natural gas are extracted by shooting huge quantities of water, sand and chemicals into the ground at high speed to break up shale rock formations. in his state of the union address in january president obama haled the economic benefits warning of potential safety risks. >> we have a supply of natural gas that can last america nearly 100 years.

in connecticut. among them is leland yee a local, state senator. he wants to reintroduce a bullet button ban which failed last year. bullet buttons allow gun users to get around the state ban on detachable magazines. >> it is as if we do not have an assault weapons ban in the state of california. with the bullet button assault rifle, what you can do is buy a magnet and you can easily load and unload these magazines. >> a local gun advocate says bans on certain weapons or parts are not good ways to prevent violence. gene hoffman the chairman of cal gun does support more background checks and mental health evaluations. >>> well, there are new signs of increased support for gun control. a cbs news poll taken after the shootings finds 57% of americans think gun laws should be strict the highest number in a decade. but 66% say at the same time when people are asked about what happened in newtown, that percentage said that tougher gun laws would have little to no effect on preventing that incident of. >>> president obama could have taken action. he said he met with cabinet members to discuss what
